First offences shouldn't receive the death penalty, is all.


That rather depends on the offence doesn't it.
I have to agree. Going through and selling everything off 100 ships from your crew and running off with the PoE? Permanent ban first time. You can't tell me people don't fricking know that stealing is wrong. If they don't know that BEFORE they get here, we won't be able to teach it to them, either.

Ok, so you've decided that 100 steals is an instant permaban. But I doubt many crews have that many unlocked ships, nowadays.

Assuming that you don't want to instapermaban someone who sells off 10 grog unknowingly, in your system there either needs to be some sort of hard and fast rule, or a judgement call by an OM.

Hard and fast rules are bad because they lead to people saying, oh, you can steal up to 9.999 PoE and you might be lucky and get away with it, or at worst you will get a weeks ban.

Making judgement calls is hard on OMs, because it takes more time and is also (I imagine) somewhat stressful.

I'm simply proposing that OMs have a much freer hand in suspensions, yet very rarely instapermaban.

I believe spitting in public is illegal in Singapore, or something like that. I don't recall exactly what the punishment is, but it is quite harsh - a public flogging or something like that (exaggeration++?). But I would like to believe that they don't impose the death penalty if you spit more than X times in public.

What I find most amusing, though, is that people are always NIMBYs, except me. And anybody who thinks they are "tough on law" is actually less so than I am. You see, while I am a strong believer in second and even third chances, and also rather privacy oriented, I "wish" it were possible to restrict people from multiple games if they consistently behave badly.

I have to admit that a short suspension doesn't work as well as a punishment when there are plenty of other games to play. But I simply don't understand the logic that getting rid of the naughties completely solves the problem - it simply unloads it on someone else.

Then again, I'm old enough to know that education can work. Coot++.

Now, now. Lots of unlocked ships around is a good thing. It means that officers can easily use available ships to run pillages. It means that a good FO, with permission gained on a crew forum, can do things in game.

Now, if we had fine-grained permissions (on the list), then this wouldn't be such a concern.

All you really have to do is ask them if that used to be their old account. If they say yes you tell an OM, you have evidence and boom.
